This companion piece to For Life is a sweet paranormal romance

56768459._SY475_In Death by W.M. Fawkes & Sam Burns

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one is basically the companion piece to For Life.

Robin is a sweetheart, he’s out and fierce, but really, he’s lonely and missing his best friend.

When he starts investing into the supernatural world, he lands himself in a whole load of trouble.

Fortunately, Luke is on hand to keep an eye out for him as Michael and Tim are still all wrapped up in each other.

In fact, they both peed me off a bit at how they dismissed Robin’s legitimate concerns.

Still, Luke isn’t oblivious and I really liked how he came to realise that his concerns over Robin might be more than not wanting the existence of vampires to be revealed.

Blurb

Act 2

In Which:

Our friends, some old and some new, must awaken a powerful, centuries-old magical force – before an old enemy gets there first…

Life for Jude is finally getting back to normal – or as normal as it gets when your new boyfriend has fangs, your old maybe-boyfriend isn’t dead after all (and has even bigger fangs), and everyone’s scrambling to adjust their lives accordingly.

There’s enough to worry about without evil, ancient vampires closing in, preparing dark rituals, and threatening to undo everything Jude, Pixie, and their loved ones have built together. But as they’ve all seen, normal doesn’t tend to last for long. And it’s hard to shake the feeling that something’s missing.

But then, it seems like everybody’s missing somebody.

Excerpt

“Outlived you after all, fucker,” he whispered to the body, every word a hard-won victory. “I’m still here.”

Then the first raindrop smacked squarely on his forehead, making him jump again, and remember where he was. As he scrambled to leave the macabre scene, he flipped up his hood, taking refuge beneath the single undamaged piece of his sweatshirt.

A misty and slow-soaking Oregon rain began to fall, white noise filling the unnatural silence. Vampire corpses tended to be quick to decay, and if the rain held, the murder site would be washed clean of most evidence.

The stone circle, however, would still be here, filled with strange and ominous power, and waiting for its requirement to be fulfilled.

This is a beautiful farewell to these vampires and their Clan

55145692._SY475_Healing Aiden by Jocelynn Drake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I spent the majority of this book on the verge of tears or clutching at my chest as my heart pounded at the adrenaline rush of the plotline.

Healing Aiden is a perfect goodbye to this astonishingly good paranormal romance series from Jocelynn.

It’s a love story forged over a millennia and more.

Starting with a couple of young men, forced to keep their feelings buried under a wealth of privilege and title, the story jumps past a thousand years of separation, each thinking the other was dead, before drawing them together again just as Aiden takes his crown as ruler of the American domain.

I’m so glad Jocelynn gave us Aiden’s story. He’s been the beating heart of the Varik Clan as each of the Lords of Discord have found their true mates.

A somewhat shadowy figure, but vitally important in all things, he has always had an air of sadness because of the fate of his other love, Julianna Varik.

Finding Ronan again felt perfect to me. It was a circle closing, a long and painful wound finally starting to heal.

I adored Ronan. There is a scene at the start of the book which had me almost howling as three of the Varik sons, plus mates, come to have ‘a word’ with him regarding his intentions towards Aiden.

That he kept his sense of humour only endeared him to me even more. I also appreciated that there was no messing about with his feelings or his reason for joining the European Ministry envoy.

I never doubted him once, it was clear just how affected he was to discover Aiden still alive.

The suspense element of the narrative also worked, it felt like an organic outcome from the end of the previous books, although Aiden’s power when he finally chooses to reveal it did make me blink for a moment or two.

But then I figured any vampire still alive after more than 10 centuries would have accumulated such immense control and built up an incredible amount of power, that it made sense he could be that dangerous.

With the Varik boys throwing their oar in without warning, the plot meanders through humour and hijinks into emotional vulnerability and seriously smexy times.

The first time Aiden and Ronan are in bed together is incandescently hot yes, but it’s so much more.

It’s second chances, it’s first times with the love you thought you’d lost, it’s humour and it’s coming home.

This is a beautiful farewell to these vampires and their Clan which will steal your heart.
